Around the Big 12 - wk 6

Kansas roared back from a 20-0 halftime deficit to defeat Baylor North, 35-33. The Cyclones went to the locker room at halftime with a 20-0 lead. The Jayhawks had 88 yards, 2 turnovers and 3 three and outs in their first five possessions of the game, while the Cyclones were amassing those 20 points. The Iowa State offense went into hibernation while the Jayhawks scored 28 unanswered points. Reesing threw for 300+ yards, and former QB Kerry Meier caught 7 balls for 125 yards and 2 scores.

In the Aggie Bowl, Boone State doubled up on Cash Machine U 56-28. Oklahoma State scored 28 points in the first half while the offense only contributed one of the TDs. The Boone State offense amassed 116 yards in the first half. On the other hand, in the second half, the Pokes never punted in the second half, and were only slowed down by a fumble. The Texas Aggies held Okie State to no 100 yard rushers.

The Willie and Friends defense played quite the hospitable hosts to the Dust Pirates, holding Graham Harrell to 454 yards and 6 TDs. Michael Crabtree struggled to 9 catches for 107 yards and 2 scores. After a 14-14 tie, Texas Tech went on a 44-7 run on its way to a 58-28 victory.

In Boulder, Colorado was able to prevent Colt McCoy from leading the Horns in rushing. However, he was unable prevent Chris Ogbonnaya, heretofore known as Chef Boyardee, because it’s easier to spell and type, from totaling 187 yards and 2 scores on 15 touches. Texas won the game 38-14. McCoy threw more incompletions Sat night than he had the previous two games combined, but was still 23-30 for 262 yards and 2 scores. Texas dominated time of possession in the game, 36 minutes to 24.

The Nebraska defense was able to shut out Chase Daniel and the Mizzouri offense for the first 58 seconds. And the fourth quarter. Unfortunately for the Bugeaters, the Tigers scored 52 points and blew out the Huskers 52-17.
